Per a 2015 report, a year at Georgetown University cost $66,971. That is a significant amount of money to be taught slavery is good. Slavery good, forced sexual relations even better.

“Are you more morally mature than the Prophet of God?” Brown says. “No, you’re not.”

So, there you have it. If Muhammad held slaves, how bad could slavery really be?

It’s a challenging point, actually: if the Prophet behaved in a certain way, who are Muslims today to stand in judgment of him and what he did? If we say that slavery is evil, are we not implicitly condemning the Prophet as an evildoer? Can a Muslim do that and still be a good Muslim? I don’t know

Traveling from the Left to the Right is a journey. It starts with one step.

Chadwick Moore, a 33-year-old journalist who lives in Williamsburg, had been a lifelong liberal. Then, last September, he penned a profile for Out magazine of Milo Yiannopoulos — a controversial alt-right extremist who is an outspoken critic of feminism, Muslims and gay rights (despite being openly gay himself). Although the Out story didn’t take a positive stance — or any stance — on Yiannopoulos, Moore found himself pilloried by fellow Democrats and ostracized by longtime friends.

What is good for the goose that identifies as a gander.........Fighting fire lunacy with lunacy.

One especially audacious budding politician from the University of Sydney, Alex Fitton, identified as a woman in late 2016 to win one of two student leadership positions. The student body’s constitution prohibited two cis-gender males from holding the office. Fitton represented the Liberal Party, which, confusingly for Americans in particular, is Australia’s main (nominally) conservative party. “Liberal” in this context means classically liberal, in the mould of the French political theorist Montesquieu and others.
